The standard library

The standard library qfs.qft, a test-suite that is part of the QF-Test distribution, contains many useful procedures for a diverse set of tasks.

Figure 11.1:  Standard library qfs.qft

Among others there are procedures for accessing and checking components (AWT, Swing, JavaFX, SWT, Web) in a generic manner, file system and database access, logging messages or screenshots to the run-log and report and for performing cleanup.

A complete description of all packages and procedures including parameters and return values is provided in the library's HTML documentation, also accessible from the QF-Test »Help« menu. The latest version is also available online.

qfs.qft is included by default in every newly created test-suite. As its directory is on the library path, specifying just qfs.qft in the 'Include files' of the 'Test-suite' node is sufficient.

Note All procedures referring to an SUT use the generic variable $(client) as an implicit parameter. You must make sure that this variable is set correctly either globally or locally or specified as an explicit parameter in the procedure call.
